Our Phil Hay hands out the scores from Villa Park - take a look below and let us know if you agree with our ratings.

Beaten too easily by Hourihanes strike, a decent effort though it was, but would have wanted more protection from his defence early on. 6/10
Bolasie is a Premier League player at his best and Ayling managed him well, preventing him from running riot down the left. 7/10

Headed home the equaliser and after initial disorganisation, came on strong and did his thing in the centre of defence, abusing the ball every time it arrived in the box. 8/10
Would prefer to forget the first 15 minutes but for most of the game, he and Jansson faced down a very potent Villa frontline. 8/10
Extremely tough circumstances to make a debut in and a very steep learning curve. Grew into the match. 7/10
Off the pace in the spell when Villa got in front but after that, worked hard to turn the tide and give Leeds a platform to play from. 7/10
One great chance to pull a goal back before half-time which he should have taken but very much part of the successful drive to turn the game on its head. 7/10
Patient on the ball and calm enough to use it sensibly, even when Leeds were 2-0 down and at risk of panicking. 8/10
Has taken no end of criticism so only fair to reflect that he was superb, in the bad spells and during a brilliant second half. 9/10
Once again, didnt do anywhere near enough. Scuffed a good chance, lost the ball when Villa scored their second and was gone by half-time. 4/10
Showed the sweetest of finishes for the winner and considering that he had not seen an endless flood of chances, that required a strikers touch. 8/10
(for Harrison, 46) - Quite simply, the difference. Came on, got at Elmohamady and made Villas defence crack. From there is was like a house of cards. 9/10
(for Davis, 78) - Had plenty to do in the closing stages as Villa tried to return fire. Bielsa has a disciplined player there. 6/10
Andrew Madeley (West Yorkshire) - Missed a clear handball by Glenn Whelan and wasnt great. 5/10
